    Hi People, I've been a-lurking a bit on and off for a while now and finally signed on, plenty of good information, pictures, performance & resto tips to be found on here for sure - and a few laughs too!
    Cars wise - I've had a fair few over the years, the standouts would be an Aussie 71 V/H Pacer with a 265 Hemi Six, 6 pack and 4 speed, an Aussie VH R/T spec'ed out as an E49 with 277 Hemi Six, 6 pack and 4 speed, a 68 318 Dodge Charger Survivor type and a black 68 R/T 440 Charger - that one made good power, and the neighbours really used to love it when I came home late in that one :steering:
    My current ride is a low miles survivor type 74 Charger SE in KB5, it came into New Zealand in 1976, so it's got a funny accent too. It's a good old cruiser, original as with a 318, cam, headers and a 2bbl!- yes, I know, never going to do any sub 15 1/4's with that on it, but hey, super reliable old bus too.
    Cheers.

            Lots of members from New Zealand, one of our mods is from down under... Be careful with him, he's probably your enoying neighbor doing smoke donuts in the middle of the night in a red elf wagon, for more info he use to own really cool purple GTX, :poke: @kiwigtx :D

                  Without even seeing this man's name in print here, I know exactly who this guy is, and he is good people.

                  That first paragraph gave it away for me. Welcome to the site buddy.....looking forward to catching up again one day soon. :drinks:

                  For the record, @KiwiCharger and I have known each other approximately 37 years. We occasionally bump into each other at various locations. :thumbsup:

                  Here we are at the 2014 Beach Hop in Whangamata......
